SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has signed a network equipment Global Framework Agreement (GFA) with Vodafone on spanning ZTE’s complete telecoms infrastructure equipment portfolio. The GFA represents a contract framework that can be used if Vodafone decides to contract ZTE for network equipment in the future.

The agreement builds on agreements previously signed by the two companies making ZTE a Vodafone Qualified Global Supplier in April 2006, and a terminal GFA announced in February 2007.

“As a major global telecoms equipment supplier, ZTE is an important potential network equipment supplier to Vodafone worldwide,” said Detlef Schultz, Vodafone Global Supply Chain Management Director. “This GFA ensures that when Vodafone companies want to work with ZTE, the structure is in place to enable that to happen quickly and efficiently for both parties.”

“This GFA gives Vodafone companies access to ZTE’s comprehensive range of network equipment that covers every possible equipment need for every global mobile communications standard,” said Mr. Lin Cheng, President of ZTE West Europe. “We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Vodafone as a strategic global partner in the telecoms infrastructure equipment area.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
